...do not make birding sound like an enticing activity. But birding in
crummy weather during migration can pay off bigtime. With many birds on the
move at this time of year, inclement weather tends to knock some down. This
is particularly true of shorebirds and waterfowl.

Getting out and checking shorebird hotspots, flooded or wet inland fields,
or bodies of water might be a good idea while the weather is poor tomorrow.
In addition to more common species like migrating waterfowl (i.e. scoters),
current rarity candidates might include Hudsonian Godwit, Red Phalarope, or
a jaeger!

You know what they say...you can't win if you don't play!
